I know Brazil is its own thing, but surely the rest realized from the start that they'd be better off in basically every way as a single country, right? Or at least two or three larger countries instead of a million tiny weak ones.
We have this thread every single week

The answer is still no. Some could work (like Bolivia-Peru, Argentina-Uruguay, Colombia-Venezuela) but Latin American countries are massively different. There are also some geographical issues, like the isolation of Chile, the non-existence of a land route between South and Central America, etc.

I truly fear this kind of discussion may be beyond the reaches of average 4chan posters, but I've found a few true scholars in /his/ in the past, so here goes nothing.

Does any one of you know any studies about cars from a gender framework? I haven't been able to find any paper or book dealing with the topic, and I refuse to believe there isn't any, since, well... cars are for boys.

Help, anyone?

>Gentling stuff
>Angus mcbride stuff from the Aztec, Mixtec and Zapotec Armies (Men-at-Arms) book
>Tomas Filsinger's maps of Tenochtittlan

And a few other things. Was also going tot seend you what I have from Tom H Hall, Louis Glanzman in that first batch of art, but I also have way more tthen that, just those are the things I have semi-orgaized enough to readily send over. I doo think we ned to work out a systeem for labeling what each image is of and aany potential accuracy issues for when they are in the mega, tthough, I havee some ideas for how that could happen I'll disscuss with you over email when I get the chance

You should also go ahead and upload the scans of tthe 'Aztec Warrior AD 1325-1521" Osprey book I uploades there to the mega
I personally would not, but there's obviously some cultural influence. Same for northern Mexico/southwest US:

if there are no opportunities where you live then move, you're not a tree. A slave doesn't have that opportunity.

Chattel slavery not really, though that was a more industrialized version of what had been happening for thousands of years. It's dressed up differently now but guys from Bangladesh/India in OPEC countries and many places in Africa may as well be, to say nothing of sex workers. We can argue about flavors all day but places where you'll be killed if you leave your job are still very much around. Morality doesn't really play into it, even in the US we still use massive amounts of barely paid labor where it's cheaper than mechanizing. Like I said before if the machines broke tomorrow we'd find our beautiful moral "convictions" suddenly very much in question, especially in the houses of people that don't want to draw their own water and the farmland.
>Morality doesn't really play into it
Morality absolutely plays into it. The impetus for abolition came from a conviction that human beings were possessed of unalienable 'natural rights' that was the culmination of nearly 2 millennia of greek & christian philosophy. You seem to have the idea that everything is technically determined, that slavery is only seen as 'wrong' because its inefficient in a mechanized world and utterly discount the power ideas have had to influence human customs.

The fact that slavery has been reduced from the legal ownership of human beings to mostly gang-related illicit activity on the margins of society is so much proof that nobody considers it 'fine when we do it'.

It's been wrong since the beginning in the sense that people were perfectly willing to kill each other to not end up in the slave class and subsequently attached the lowest social status to it, but no I don't think the ancients across cultures lost very much sleep over the practice when they were on the better end of it except when a revolt was happening, which is what I mean by the "fine when we do it" idea. There are no natural rights except for what you can claim for yourself against someone with a weapon that tells you you don't have them, and slavery was seen as a logical part of the game until very recently. Most seem to forget that the vast majority of slaves came as a result of conquests and offering those on the losing end an out from simple execution, including the Africans that were eventually brought to America. Perhaps I'm pessimistic but it seems the prevalence of our moral convictions has much more to do with technological advancements and sitting on top of the most powerful military apparatus the world has ever seen than anything else, which has always determined who sets the rules. Ideas aren't irrelevant but I do think they're far more downstream than most want to admit, and even then there aren't too many western people crying for the kid making 15 cents an hour to put their iphone together. Also the idea that our noble institutions don't play a part in modern slavery and its pseudo-iterations is laughably naive.

Why is Manifest Destiny seen as good and Lebensraum bad

The United States taking land from a bunch of tribal savages didn't really upset the local balance of power any because they were the only powerful nation in all the Americas. Meanwhile in Europe you can't really expand anywhere without stepping on somoene's toes, metaphorically speaking. In addition, the land Germany wanted to conquer was already inhabited by civilized (albeit less prosperous) people who shared a common background as Europeans and the Christian religion. This made it a lot more unseemly, and the US got away with it because Westerners didn't really empathize with non-Westerners as much as they have since the 2nd half of the 20th century.
The lost Mexican territories are 'within America', though, it's basically just stanning for one group of European colonists over another. And really, wanting your own people to fail and suffer is even more unhealthy than wanting other people to do so. How much American anti-Americanism is just projected self-loathing?
As far as I know, the United States was supposed to be just that. A loosely organized group of states under a union (much like the European Union is today). That is, after the Civil War the United States started to act more as one country instead of a conglomerate of individual states.

Hello /his/trionics, a while back we had a comfy thread sharing good books on naval history and kittehs. I like learning, and am willing to read significantly outside my comfort zone. I'd like to know what in particular interests you and why, and a book you recommend on the subject - all suggestions are welcome. Kittehs also welcome.

Austria-Hungary: The Polyglot Empire by Wolf von Schierbrand. An interesting book written during the war in 1917 about society, culture, politics and war efforts of the dying empire.
Your leg is thin
Shhh no one should know about libgen
the author has such a good writing style, the description of the empire in the first few pages really hooks you

Is humanity naturally more inclined towards inborn social stratification (ie nobility and blood determining social status), democratic social stratification (ie widespread consensus and approval determining social status), or meritocracy (ie leadership capabilities and competence determining social status)?
Nobility wasn't a "blood" thing to determine social status, it became that way later. Nobility were a warrior caste that were able to usurp power from "civilian" authorities.

We're predisposed to form hierarchies to govern and protect each other, the exact nature and form of these hierarchies is subject to the force projection of each level in the hierarchy.
So control over the power to do violence is the biggest factor?

Naturally, yes. Political power is just the threat of military power.
